Roots Manuva

A Life Steeped in Sound

Rodney Hylton Smith, better known by his stage name Roots Manuva (born 9 September 1972), is an English rapper and producer. Since his debut in 1994, he has produced numerous albums and singles on the label Big Dada, achieving commercial success with albums Run Come Save Me[1] and Slime & Reason. He has been described as "one of the most influential artists in British music history." His most recent studio album, Bleeds, was released in October 2015.

In Big Dada I'd always remained with an independent label. These are new and interesting times. True independence might seem scary...but here I am.
